Safe Havens

Building & Maintaining Safe Playgrounds

By Richard Zowie


N

obody wants to hear that a child has been injured at a playground—whether you're the parent or the person in charge of the site. Many questions will be asked, analyzed and answered. Could the injury have been avoided? Was something missed during the planning process? Was the equipment faulty? Did the construction crew make a mistake during installation? Did someone fail to perform preventive maintenance?

When it comes to making playgrounds safe, much thought goes into both building them safely and keeping them safely, as well as taking into consideration the materials to be used. For everyone involved, keeping children safe while they have some fun is the number-one priority.
